Publisher's Summary

Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer. The illegitimate daughter of the king, Mairin possesses prized property that has made her a pawn-and wary of love. Her worst fears are realized when she is rescued from peril only to be forced into marriage by her charismatic and commanding savior, Ewan McCabe. But her attraction to her ruggedly powerful new husband makes her crave his surprisingly tender touch; her body comes alive under his sensual mastery. And as war draws near, Mairin's strength, spirit, and passion challenge Ewan to conquer his demons-and embrace a love that means more than revenge or land.

    "Everything a Romance Novel Should Be!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this novel without hesitation. It has everything a girl wants in a romance novel. There are times for a serious read, for a read to expand your mind and educate you, and then there is the time for a good romance novel to remind you of those saucy paperbacks of your youth! This novel has it all - spirited heroine, a strong hero, danger, love, and the happy ever after!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main female character is spirited and strong and does not give up on her dreams but remains open to true love.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    I honestly believe Kirsten Potter is one of the best narrators I have ever heard. She has an uncanny ability to bring each character to life and does not possess one ounce of that boring monotone voice that can make some books so hard to listen to even if the story is a good. I would defintely listen to more books - outside of this genre - where she is the narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Fighting Highland Lass

    "Trashy fun"

    This book, like the rest of the series, "reads" as if it was written in a hurry. There are several slightly annoying multiple word usage points (repeating something that could easily have been substituted with a similar word). So the actual "text" is ever so slightly sloppy sounding but the story itself is SO much fun!!! It sometimes gets needlessly racy but it all adds to the great fun of this book and this series. I couldn't wait to move to the next volume to hear how peripheral characters introduced in this volume fared as major players in the next book. Bottom line, these books are worth the effort for the fun factor.

    "Great story, pretty good narrator"

    I really enjoyed this highlander story. My only real issue was the narrator would switch between a scottish burr and her normal american accent. When Rosalyn Landor (my favorite narrator) reads, she stays in the same dialect. I would have preferred the narrator to pick one and stick with it. But overall, she did well.

    "Make the cover match the story!"
    If you could sum up In Bed with a Highlander in three words, what would they be?

    easy to follow


    What three words best describe Kirsten Potter’s performance?

    I felt she does a good job, however it sounds like some of the people in the story come from Transavania not Scottland.

    Story
    "I didn't know Scotland was in Transylvania"
    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Kirsten Potter?

    Probably with a different narrator


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Couldn't get that far


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The Scott accents were weird and sounded more like Dracula than Scottish. The regular bathroom sounded to sleepy and monotone


    What character would you cut from In Bed with a Highlander?

    Didn't get that far

    "So glad there are two more books in this series!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book I've listened to by Maya Banks. I found myself picking up my iPod every time I had a spare moment, even if it was just for five minutes. The story was good, grabbed me at the first page, and the characters likable. Ms Banks did a wonderful job with her secondary characters, I am hoping they get a grand story of their own.

    For now, I am now off to buy the other two books in this series.

    Story
    "Tired, derivative story. Dreadful narration."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Original plot and characters. A storyline that is not contrived.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I listened to The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane. It had a very good balance of an original story and interesting characters. Howe has a nice writing style and Kellgren did a fine job as the narrator. There was even romance - one I liked.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was not up to the task of keeping in character. One minute she had a faux Scottish accent, the next a bland American one.


    What character would you cut from In Bed with a Highlander?

    The question is which one to keep in? I cannot think of any except for a secondary child character.


    Any additional comments?

    I rarely buy romances. I decided to try this one because it was on sale and had so many 5 star reviews. Why anyone would give this a 5 stars is beyond me.

    Story
    "Young woman finds her place in the world."

    Story starts out fairly violent and cruises for a while working on the relationship of the heroine (and make no mistake, she is a heroine, not a damsel in distress) with her new husband and new clan. The characters in the story were well done. The narration really drew me into the story and made it real. Kristen Potter had great accents for the characters and she did a very good job with male voices. The end of the story ends with some suspense and action that was fine, but sort of gilding the lily on this great listen.

    Story
    "Not bad"

    This was an okay listen. When I was done I didn't have any overwhelming feelings in either direction- love or hate. I think what holds this book above water is the narration. The story line is decent, but predictable. I found myself giving a half hearted cheer in certain parts of the book...
